overly emotional silly putty

the first big project for my animation 2 class :)

Saturday, January 24, 2009


character from last quarter.... doing a rehash. design is geared to animation. was trying to figure out overall shapes and be rather minimalistic. (obviously the hair needs attention... maybe.... hm.) started as just a doodle during critique in anim 2, toying with design and proportions, playing with different pens :) then did a quick turn. structure is a mixture of loomis body/facial shape and jacques figure shape.

i'd like to animate her through the storyboard i originally drew her in, if i have the time. name? i thought maybe laetita, after our wonderful lacoste secretary-coordinator person, but i think it's a bit too fancy. any suggestions from the peanut gallery?

amanda the arachnid slayer!!!

a sketch for the sequential art society poster. :)

amanda the arachnid slayer rides again!!!! looking a bit taller than usual. this is because i only had the pose in my head as i was sketching; not who the character was. but then, "what's she holding?" and the immediate answer from my head was "a broom." and the obvious follow-up of that was that it was amanda standing there triumphant over her hairy eight-legged destroyer of peace. .....and cinder block.

i tell you, i don't know who it is when my head talks back to me like this, but it works.

back to sketch club

first meeting of sketch club... almost 40 people came! amazing things happen when a professor offers extra credit for drawing out of class :)

lack of updates = lack of scanner. this quarter I'm taking drawing for sequential art with Tom Lyle (of spiderman and batman/robin fame! YESSS!!!!) materials and techniques for sequential art with Dove (the father of three) and animation 2 with Debra moorshead of liverpool fame... and she also was a tweener for Richard Williams for "Who Framed Rogre Rabbit" but quit after 6 months because evidently he was a bit of a slave driver.

no matter. i've already done a LOT of drawing for class, but I need to get them all scanned in. keep watching :)

as a tide-over, here's my christmas/newyear's email card for this year because i forgot to post it earlier. in all of its Lama glory:
